Wed, 25th Jun 2014 15:04

Monrovia (Alliance News) - Ten new cases of the Ebola virus have been confirmed in Liberia, raising the total to 29, Assistant Health Minister Tolbert Nyensweah said Wednesday.

Fourteen suspected cases have also been discovered, according to the government.

In addition, three more people have died from the disease, which has so far claimed more than 30 lives in Liberia, according to the United Nations' World Health Organization (WHO).

Of the confirmed cases, 21 are in northern Lofa County, while eight are in the capital Monrovia, Nyensweah told dpa.

The Health Ministry has asked the public to inform the authorities about any deaths occurring in homes or backyard clinics before burial.

Ebola, which has a fatality rate of 90%, is one of the most contagious viral diseases known. In March, the virus spread from Guinea to neighbouring Liberia.
